Miss Laela is officially seven months old today! How did she celebrate? By giving me a massive smile after her afternoon nap, revealing a new tooth! Great work, little L! I had no idea you were even really teething! I asked her to please pop her other top front tooth one of these days so she wouldn’t look too much like a redneck 😉 Don’t worry, it was all in jest. She’s quite a beauty.
I spent the afternoon with my mom and the kids. Friends of mine just had their second baby, and we volunteered to make them supper today. So while we played with the babes and visited amongst ourselves, we made one of my favorites – baked spaghetti, as well as one of those yummy broccoli salads with all the munchies in it, and another batch of that messy and delicious cherry cheesecake square dessert. The last time I made that dessert, I made it in the wrong size of pan, and it was super messy. So this time, I did exactly what I was supposed to do, and it was even messier! What gives?! Oh well. Its yummy.
My mom made a delicious hashbrown casserole and farmer sausage for supper, so that was so comfy and yummy. When it was all over, we made our first ever trip to the city together in our van! All six of us!! There were a few really good grocery deals on, so we went in just for a couple of things simply so we didn’t have to try to get in tomorrow. It was nice and relaxed. Dekker loved having grandma and grandpa along, sitting in the backseat so close by.
He was so very sad when we dropped them off, and wailed good and proper, but was quieted before we were even out of the driveway. Tired kids. Tired kids who are not tucked in for night, and tired parents who are so ready for a bath and some House before bed.
I had a great day. I am so proud of Dekkers speech, and so thrilled about Laela’s latest tooth arriving with no fuss at all. I’m very very grateful for my family.
